About the festival


As with productions promoted on @BechdelTheatre, shows celebrated can be any style or scale, as long as women are represented as existing beyond their relationships to men.


Note: the festival is not producing new plays, but celebrating ones that already exist.


The festival can promote your show if it aces the Bechdel test, but only once it’s on stage!


Conversations focus on sharing responses to the story and characters in the play, and themes we can relate to real life, framed in non-theatre-specific language (ie if the play was ‘Top Girls’ we may talk about motherhood, class, “career women”, and what has changed since the 1980s).


The festival is for anyone seeking a deeper discussion of female characters than can be held on twitter.


Bechdel Theatre Festival conversations are free to attend if you've seen any performance of the play being discussed.
